How do you make federal government bureaucrats cry? By making America great again. The election was over two months ago and employees at the Environmental Protection Agency are still “coming to work in tears.” This is too good to be true.
“At EPA headquarters, the mood remains dark,” ProPublica reported Wednesday. “A longtime career communications employee said in a phone interview Tuesday that more than a few friends were ‘coming to work in tears’ each morning as they grappled with balancing the practical need to keep their jobs with their concerns for the issues they work on.”
Trump’s victory has been tough for bureaucrats. The State Department held stress workshops after the election so they would not “become paralyzed by fear.” EPA employees were caught crying before, just after the election, as were White House aides. Energy Department employees were granted counseling. Sobbing staffers greeted Hillary Clinton on Capitol Hill a month after her loss.
I wish I could be there. Nothing brings me more joy than an EPA thug crying at his desk. This is an Eric Cartman moment.
